The hotel was a bargain at $36 per night for what you get. The room was nice but dirty...the walls in the room had black dirt or soot on them and if you rub up against them your clothes need to be washed. It looks like they never wipe down walls or clean the drapes. the carpets were dirty and dusty and there was mold and mildew in the bathroom. The nicest thing about this hotel was the compound was walled off so you are isolated from all the dirt and grime of being in Cairo and inside the compound was a nice pool, landscaped areas, outdoor bars and a bedouin tent for entertainment in the evening. Location was also good with access to the pyramids only a few minutes away and only a few seconds to get on the Ring road which circles the city.
Not sure about the location as we had a tour guide pickup us up each day. The hotel was very enjoyable and would stay there again. The room was large, clean and quite. The pyramids and the night laser show were great. Also, loads of fun riding the camel. If your have the time drive to Alexandria. You won't be disappointed.
The water pressure was terrible. It took an hour to fill the bath tub. Every place reeked of cigarette smoke. My wife is pregnant so this was unacceptable.
Pros: * The hotel has excellent service from room service to hotel taxis. * Rooms are large and clean. * Two restaurants and a bank within the hotel itself. Cons: * Our room was facing the pool where they had a band every night and the music would be very loud well into the night. So you have to wake up early then that might be a problem. * The hotel faces a overpass freeway and there is nothing on the street below the freeway other than debris.
